IES is involved in all levels of research with respect to sustainable and environmental design for spaces, buildings, neighbourhoods and cities. We currently invest over a quarter of our revenue into Research & Development and have a proven track record of working with industrial and academic partners on singular and collaborative research projects.
We are continuously researching new methodologies and technologies. This includes windows, renewable energy technology, green facades, smart facades/envelopes and the modelling of processes and flows, to mention a few.
We work directly with industry partners, such as Daikin and Monodraught, using the simulation environment to virtually prototype new technologies and validate the improvements generated by these technologies in real buildings. Industrial partners can engage with us on a number of fronts both to develop their own business and also to engage in collaborative Research and Development.
